What is Electra Jailbreak ?
Electra Jailbreak is a toolkit designed for developers of various tweaks and apps that require root access, to test tweaks, themes and applications.
It is developed by Coolstar and designed by Alessandro Chairlitti.
If your not into a cydia less jailbreak version of iOS 11. Then you shoud try and install LiberiOS Jailbreak.
The Toolkit comes with the following stuff.
- Anemone theming engine : Now you can theme your iOS device without Winterboard using Anemone Themes. But it requires you to have theme files first.
- Substitute : An alternative for substrate. Which allows you to run tweaks and apps requiring root access through it. Keep in mind that you’ll not get cydia even though Electra Substitute allows you to install and run tweaks through it.
- Preference Loader : A debian package.
- Dropbear SSH client : Allows full SSH access.
- SCP / SFTP / Command line : Will give access to command line and associated commands.
I should probably give you a warning that this version of Electra Jailbreak iPA App is specifically aimed for developers to try to test their tweaks. So Do Not Install this Toolkit on your iOS device. If you’re not a developer. But who’s going to listen right 😉 .

Electra Jailbreak Black Screen or Reboot Fix
Many complaints were there ,reporting problems with the toolkit installation or usage. Coolstar addressed the problem with a solution via twitter. That is , if you get stuck on a black screen or Reboot ,then run this over SSH to enable Tweaks.
That’s about it for the Electra Jailbreak. If you’re a new user and unexperienced in tech feild. I’d recommend not to play around with this. As maybe you’ll wind up installing new OS and loose all your data.
